Trees, Trees. Trees! ! !
I think that I shall never see one block
of pavement as lovely as a tree. To some
people progress Is using available money to
widen a small section of Kenansville's Main
Street. Just because money is available do
we have to gradually destroy the beauty of
our town?
ag cities spend thousands of dollars in
planning for trees. Did you notice the re
cent full page write up on Belhaven? The
first sentence of this coverage described
the trees on the streets of this small town.
Kenansville can continue to use money as it
becomes available to take away more trees
and soon our town will look backward, and
unprogressive. Almost all the homes in Ken
ans vifle are more attractive with trees. And
another sad point is the destruction of trees
is taking place right at the beautifully restored
Kenan House.
If good shade trees had been planted on
out Hospital grounds when the plum bushes
(now sjtrouting peach limbs from the stump)
were planted the hospital grounds would ap
pear more restful and inviting.
Kenansville has an opportunity to remain
distinctive from other small towns and saving
trees could be a part of it.
Soil Analysis Map Presented To Raiford's Office
a general soil map of Duplin
County showing seven soil as
